Posting on an unusual day.

Goodafternoon everybody,
This will be a short post, already today, instead of tomorrow, because tomorrow I will have not too much time for it.
Friday evening we received a card in the post with the sad news that a good friend passed away. It's the one I think I already wrote about a couple of months ago. He had cancer everywhere in his body, and it weaked him so much that he had a heart attack last Tuesday.
In a way it was a good thing this happened, so he didn;t have to suffer too much, and died at home in the arms of his wife.
But still it's another member of our close group of the old cafe, we celebrated many birthday, wedding, christmas parties together.
Tomorrow will be the funeral service, so you can understand I will not have a lot of time and will not be in the mood either.
It really influenced our weekend, this event remained all the time at the background of our thoughts.
Bert was the one who wa so proud to drive the car on our wedding day, almost 5 years ago now.
I hope, he will be at peace now, without any pain, in a wonderful free world.

So if you don;t mind, I will just post the freebies now and finish the post with it. Wednesday I will be back, and ramble along as usual.
From Arlene, beautiful clusters from the Fresh Look kit.

And from me a recently made kit, strangely enough with a title that comes together with the passing away from our friend,  "Remember the Good Times".
Have a lovely day!

It's so sad when we lose those so close to us. Your friend will no longer be in pain, but still there is a heavy ache in your heart. Try to think of all the good memories. They will always be with you. God bless you, hugs, Edna B.
